I'm Meeting About Meetings Even

I'm in meetings all day. No time to post, and no mental energy to think of anything but work. Although I'm feeling good about work and really like being this busy, just not in meetings.

But can someone tell me when I'm supposed to get my actual work done if I'm in meetings all day? Besides finishing work at home after I try to put the baby bed and stay up too late and get up with the baby in the night/early morning and am too tired when I start my day and then have to sit in meetings all day...

I will update that the Pumpkin is doing SO much better! She's feeling better and sleeping better. She didn't get up until 4:45 this morning, although she didn't really go back to sleep after that. Londo and I have high hopes that after this sickness is gone and her other molar comes in, she will go back to sleeping through the night.

Hey, we can (day)dream, can't we?

We have but only hope. :)

As for the meetings about meetings, I hear ya. Gotta love consulting! To stay awake in those, I usually doodle incessantly until the darn things are over!

Dh has the same problem as you. Meetings friggin meetings all day long, then fixing other people's problems, which leaves him with the rest of the time with his own stuff. I'm sure that when I'm telling him about my day, he is actually trouble shooting in his head, that would explain that vacant look that he gets. You're a champ though. I find it so hard dealing with my two monsters and one is away most of the day, and I don't even work.

As for work, I'm there too. ONly I'm so busy trying to undo things others have messed up(rather than be in meetings) that I can't actually do my work.

Glad to hear the Pumpkin is better!

We're going to have a meeting to discuss why we don't have time do to our work. In it we will discuss the things we should be doing instead of meeting.

Or the classic, we're meeting to pick a time for our next meeting.

Baby Fidgets in Sleep (and While Awake)

Since I've started this blog, I've had quite a few visitors find me through a search for something like "baby fidgets in sleep" or "baby fidgets in bed" or simply "baby fidgets." This leads me to believe that there are others out there with fidgety babies who drive them crazy enough to search on the internet for some information about fidgeting babies. So I thought I'd do a whole post to discuss the fidgety nature of my child and how I deal with it.

Do you want to know when my child first started fidgeting? IN UTERO!! I'm not kidding. When I was pregnant, this baby moved a lot. She was very often kicking and pushing and hiccuping. OMG, the hiccups! I thought they would drive me nuts. Every. Single. Day. For. Months. Straight. Often more than once a day. I am not exaggerating--you can ask Londo or the many people I worked with, all of whom had to hear about it. I just thought it was part of being pregnant, and it probably is, but I've al…

Some Babies Just Fidget

I have mentioned before that we had a very fidgety baby. It's been a while sinced I talked about it. Although she is still pretty fidgety, at her currently toddler stage it seems more normal and has in many ways translated into bigger, general movements, like climbing.

But I still get a ton of search hits that have to do with baby fidgeting or flailing while sleeping or nursing. Some people stay around and read a bit, and I hope they get what they need from the posts I wrote specifically aboutthis topic hoping that others realize they are not alone. Most people don't stay at all, and I figure they are probably looking for medical reasons why babies fidget (like I would).

Then I got this comment, which does indeed show that people are looking for medical reason. Anonymous said that she wasn't sure if the Pumpkin's fidgets were as severe are her 3.5 month old. Well anonymous, I can't be positive since I haven't seen your child, but at some points they were as bad …

Fidgety Baby Growing Up

My daughter was a very fidgety baby. More fidgety than any other baby I knew through all my years of babysitting, being an aunt and having friends and family with babies. So fidgety that I wondered if something was wrong, if there was an underlying reason for her fidgetiness.

There really wasn’t anything wrong. As far as I can tell, she simply has a LOT of energy in her body. Her father is the same way. Londo is full of energy and has always been a fidgeter. And me? I can’t sit in one position for a long period of time. I don’t really fidget so much as I shift positions periodically, and I don’t think I ever simply sit normal, facing forward with both feet on the ground when I’m in a chair. In fact, sitting normal sounds like torture to me.

But three years ago, when the Pumpkin was a few months old and through her babyhood, I didn’t know why she was fidgeting so much. When I would nurse her, when we’d be rocking her to sleep, when we would try to hold her calmly, when we’d be lying in…
